I Am So Easily Forgotten

    I'm very easily forgotten. I think it might be because I'm so quiet. No one remembers me. No one even knows who I am. I'm invisible. I'm a nobody. I'm nothing. Everyone forgets me and moves on to someone who's worth remembering. My friends don't even "remember" to invite me...

    Last Option

    I tried putting this to the side for the past 7 years or so, but I’m tired of feeling forgotten. Like, I’m tired of always making the initiative to hangout, make arrangements and decisions for everyone and then them leaving me in the end. I would like for ONCE for people to...

    Isn't it wonderful how people just forget you

    even exist? One day they're your best friend and then the next they just stop talking to you. I can't deal with this anymore. I will not let anyone close, so don't even try. My heart can't take anymore hurt and pain. People don't care, so I'm not going to care anymore. I don't...

    The Reality Of The Situation

    You know I often times, in the past, have wondered why you so rarely find realistic stories out there. I later realized, this is because reality is harsh and sucks. There is nothing pretty or romantic about reality. Reality is harsh, reality hates you, people fear you, and you...

    In real life and on here,

    everyone i meet will soon forget me. I would soon fade from their memories slowly. I'll end up being all alone again and it's happening quicker than i thought. I hate that all this is true. But something still gives me hope. Hope that you haven't have forgotten..
